...and here I thought it was Roger Waters writing those depressing lyrics for Pink Floyd !
But true . I am not yet in my 60's, but "Black Peter" means more to me now than when I was hearing Jerry sing it live ! That I am now older than George Harrison, Frank Zappa, and Jerry Garcia, when they died, is sobering .
The Doors were a favs of me "youth", but Ray's passing just seems like par for the course , these days, Glad he made to his 70's .
If any death marked the end of the 60's , it was John Lennon's , or strangely, maybe Richard Nixon's .
